Cindy has a strong interest in helping people recover from emotional, mental, physical, and sexual abuse. Too often when someone experiences abuse they are blamed for their own situation, made to feel they are crazy, or told to get over it. She creates a warm supportive environment in which people can feel safe to tell their stories.
For some, it’s the first time they’ve ever really had a voice or spoken their truth about what they’ve endured. People with post-traumatic stress have nervous systems that are constantly on alert, prepared for the next negative event.
As a result, much of the work is focused on learning grounding and mindfulness exercises to be able to self-soothe and to prevent dissociation.
In addition to these techniques taught in session and practiced at home, Cindy encourages other mind-body treatments such as Reiki, acupuncture, Emotion Code, and Yoga to assist in releasing the effects of trauma on the body. There is also a strong focus on examining trauma-related beliefs and how they impact how an individual sees themselves, other people, and world.
Often people develop negative core beliefs that wreak havoc on their self-esteem, relationships, and success. Cindy helps clients to confront these beliefs and replace them with positive beliefs that help them to heal and lead happier, healthier lives.
